Georgia Tech Faculty and Students Take Lead at KDD 2018 with Premier Data Mining Research
Georgia Tech researchers are heading to London this week to take part in the 24th Association for Computing Machinery SIGKDD Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD).
KDD is the world’s premier forum for advancement, education, and adoption of the science of knowledge discovery and data mining and is being held August 19-23. The program includes keynotes, invited talks, workshops, hands-on tutorials, and conventional tutorials.
Faculty and students in the School of Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) and associated research units – Center for Machine Learning, School of Computer Science, and the Institute for Information Security and Privacy, are presenting at this year’s conference.
“It is incredibly exciting to be part of the Georgia Tech team of talented students and faculty, showcasing our diverse research achievements at KDD, ranging from scalable methods for health applications, novel approaches for searching for lead pipes in Flint, to practical defense for artificial intelligence,” said CSE Associate Professor Polo Chau.
Chau will be joined by more than 10 other faculty members and student researchers from Georgia Tech sharing 10 papers in oral, poster, and demo presentations during the five-day event.
In addition to these 10 papers – including one of Chau’s research team’s latest publications, which aims to protect artificial intelligence systems from malicious attacks – Georgia Tech researchers are presenting a conventional tutorial and an all-day workshop. The workshop, Interactive Data Exploration and Analytics, addresses the development of data mining techniques with 13 papers accepted for presentation from various research institutions and groups across the globe.
To help attendees and others interested in the conference, Georgia Tech has developed an interactive data visualization detailing of its research papers, as well as dates, times, and locations for the associated talks.
Below are the titles of Georgia Tech’s research being presented this week along with each paper’s respective authors. Each title is linked to the full paper.
